FEATURED STORY I Had A Sweet Dream: The Special Prosecutor Retrieved Over Gh20 Billion!...


Asamoah Gyan" missing"

12 February 2012 | Cup of Nations

22 members of the Black stars team and management members have arrived with the exclusion of lead striker Asamoah Gyan. The player is said to have boarded a private jet back to his club side Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates. The player failed to play in the last game after performing woefully in the game against Zambia and missed a penalty in the game.

The team ended their tournament on a poor note as the match for third place saw the dismissal of Isaac Vorsah in the 64th minute after picking a second yellow card. And that was Ghana's third red card in the competition.

Perhaps Ghana's best performance came in the semi-final against Zambia, though they lost 1-0. But the team failed to find form allowing Diabate Tidiane to score both goals in either half from simple tap-ins. Meanwhile the Football Association is planning to schedule a press conference within the week.
